    Hpi Baja 5b Shock set up

    What pipe for 34cc OBR in a HPI Baja 5b?

    So what pipe should I get? I'm planing on getting a 34cc obr or esp later this winter, an I want pipe suggestions. It's for a Baja 5b, not a 5t so it can't be some crazy cross over pipe or something. I'd like a rear mount preferably but side pipe would be ok too.

    So what's the difference in these top plates?

    Was scrolling ddm as I do, and I see that there's 2 versions of the turtle racing front top plate for the Baja, a 5b and a 5t/5sc. What's the difference? When I converted my rov 5b to a 5t, I didn't have any issues regarding mounting the things. Is it some money making scheme?
